All of a sudden, the DVD tray will not close. Each time I click the remote or use the manual button to open/close the tray, the tray opens, closes and then opens again. When I finally DID get it to stay closed, the disc will not play, and the machine freezes.
I've tried turning off the machine. I've tried disconnecting it and reconnecting. Still, the same dilemma.
Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Re: Go Video Dual Deck VR2940
Hello bettysgarage. A common malfunction in DVD players. The mechanics has a bad part or something is jamed in the rails, arms, lifts, ect. I suggest you unpluge the AC, remove the case screws(note witch screw went were), and look internaly for something in the mechanics, thread, paper, loose paper clip, ect. Carefully postion unit and reconnect the AC so you may see the action of the disk tray in motion. Please be careful you have AC power and can get SHOCKED if you touch the circuit or wire terminals. When no object is found you have a bad DVD that would require a local service technican to repair unless you are technically inclined to vinture futher. Good Luck.

Very sorry for your loss. As always the first step is to make sure the player is connected to the wall outlet and turned on.
To put a disk in the DVD you should push the "Eject" button to open and close the tray it looks like a home(a triangle over a dash) on the front side of the box down left corner of the tray. You have the same button on the remote marked "Eject". Push either once, put the disk with the shiny side down on the tray and push the Eject button again to feed the tray back into the player. Usually the disk starts automatically and you will see a menu on the TV with alternatives like "Play the movie", "Setup", "Scenes",... you may highlight the "Play the movie" alternative, using "Up", "Down", "Left" and "Right" and then press the "OK" button. Or just push the "Play" button either on the box or the remote control. If you click "Here "you can download the manual in PDF form. To open it in your pc you'll need "Adobe Acrobat Reader" (or any other PDF reader) installed.
I will gladly answer your questions
Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!
These are instructions to open door if DVD is jammed or the DVD recorder wont open.
Unscrew the 7 cover screws and the 2 foot screws. Remover player cover.
Pry the front control cover off from the top of the player and not the bottom with a thin screw driver paying attention not to crack or break the tabs. Just lift them enough to clear the hooks.Then lower the cover withut removing it so you can gain access to the DVD front internal bezel.
On the left side of the DVD recorder there is a notch with a lever in it. gently push on it as this is the release for the DVD door. Remove DVD from tray and close.
Re-install all covers and screws. Machine should work after this.
When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:
Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same
time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts
reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
After power on the dvd, open the tray and put any video dvd in and close it, wait for about a minute, then press Setup or any button on remote control, if it work then need to replace with the new battery CR2025.
